My Lady's Choosing: An Interactive Romance Novel (Paperback)
"Finally the Regency Era choose-your-own-adventure novel you've been waiting for! You'll laugh, you'll fan yourself, and you might even find yourself behaving in a manner MOST unseemly for a lady." —Anthony— From The Most Brilliant Books of 2018
I laughed, I gasped, and I behaved in a MOST unladylike manner. Full of all the familiar tropes (grand balls, a house fire, a trip to Egypt), My Lady's Choosing will have you dabbing your eyes with your lilac-scented silk handkerchief one second and fanning yourself with your Parisian lace fan the next. Perfect for anyone who finds a woeful lack of choose-your-own-adventures for adults. —Anthony— From Staff Favorites List- Winter 2020
The romance novel that lets you pick your path, follow your heart, and find happily ever after
You are the plucky but penniless heroine in the center of eighteenth-century society, courtship season has begun, and your future is at hand. Will you flip forward fetchingly to find love with the bantering baronet Sir Benedict Granville? Or turn the page to true love with the hardworking, horse-loving highlander Captain Angus McTaggart? Or perhaps race through the chapters chasing a good (and arousing) man gone mad, bad, and scandalous to know, Lord Garraway Craven? Or read on recklessly and take to the continent as the “traveling companion” of the spirited and adventuresome Lady Evangeline? Or yet some other intriguing fate?
Unexpected and multiple intertwining storylines make this novel a daring delight to read again and again, with beguiling illustrations bringing all the lust and love to life.
